Exodus 34:27-28 NIV
Then the Lord said to Moses, Write down all these instructions, for they represent the terms of the covenant I am making with you and with Israel.
Moses remained there on the mountain with the Lord forty days and forty nights. In all that time he ate no bread and drank no water. And the Lord wrote the terms of the covenant – the Ten Commandments – on the stone tablets.
Psalm 19:7-8 NLT
The instructions of the LORD are perfect, reviving the soul.
The decrees of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple.
The commandments of the LORD are right, bringing joy to the heart.
The commands of the LORD are clear, giving insight for living.
Matthew 22:34-40 NLT
Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the law?
Jesus replied: Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.
This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbour as yourself.
All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.
Matthew 22:37-40 MSG
Jesus said, Love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence.
This is the most important, the first on any list.
But there is a second to set alongside it: Love others as well as you love yourself.
These two commands are pegs; everything in God’s Law and the Prophets hangs from them.
